Now that the coronation of Barack Hussein Obama is done, and all the hub bub regarding religious inclusiveness (i.e. inauguration prayers, who’s praying, what’s being prayed, etc.) have passed, I wanted to offer this single question: Did the true God of Heaven and Earth even “hear” all those ecumenical, non-specific, generalized, ultra-tolerant prayers? Thus says […]
Your sermon of the week is Brian Borgman’s message The Gospel of Justifying Grace (Part 2). This is part two of three on justifying grace and is a source of encouragement for believers in the assurance of salvation and the doctrine of justification. You can find part one here.
Just two days before the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, this country welcomes its most pro-abortion president to the White House; one who supports the murder of children even outside of the womb. With help from those who profess to be Christians, we have received the king that we’ve demanded; a king this nation […]
While Americans celebrate Martin Luther King Junior Day and reflect upon his famous “I have a dream” speech, let us not forget another “dream”: The dream of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger who called blacks “human weeds, reckless breeders” and “human beings who never should have been born.“ More of this woman’s “progressive” and “tolerant” […]
As Mark Driscoll continues to slide ever further into the culturally relevant abyss - debasing himself and his ministry in the filthy conversation of this fallen world in the process - we find the chorus of voices calling for the purity of Christ’s church and a return to Biblical modesty and genuine repentance rising louder and louder. I came […]
Who said this and why can be found in this article from across the pond. Just another sign of the times.
When I first started witnessing I assumed that when I ran into Christians, they would cheerfully offer their encouragement and prayers. That hasn’t turned out to be the case, and I’ve come to dread running into Christians, because most say I don’t witness properly. It’s almost certain that they’ll say the Bible doesn’t even tell […]
Here’s a blast from the past. On this episode of the Phil Donahue show Walter Martin debates two Wiccans. Some of the most interesting comments come from audience members and callers who should know better (like the Baptist and the Catholic). Although I don’t necessarily agree with Dr. Martin’s affirming remark about Charismatics, I must […]
We begin a three part series by Reformed Pastor Brian Borgman with The Gospel of Justifying Grace (Part 1). This is a great series on justifying grace and is a source of encouragement for believers in the assurance of salvation and the doctrine of justification.
There are many passages that teach the need to shepherd, to train, to instruct, and to discipline your children. None of these passages has getting a child to pray the “sinner’s prayer” as its focus. – Tedd Tripp
The devil baits his hook with religion. – Thomas Watson 1620 – 1686
This is the epitome of rank heresy. How many lies can you count in this three-minute video? HT: A Little Leaven
As shovel-fulls of lies spew forth from these two fork-tongued false prophets you can almost hear in the hiss,”Hath God really said?“ It’s precisely for this reason that I wrote the post Woe Unto You. HT: Cruci-Fide
As you watch these two video clips you have to ask yourself, “Where is the preaching of the Word?” These people are entertained (and manipulated) so easily that it’s frightening. I had to endure this foolishness back in the 1990′s and I see that fifteen years later this wickedness is still popular among the “experience […]
One day you visit a church, your teen goes off to the youth service, your little one goes off to children’s church, the baby goes to the nursery, and you and your spouse get a great seat in a plush auditorium with first-class music, professional drama, a relevant, encouraging, application-oriented, non-threatening talk, and you get […]
As an elementary public school in Detroit, Michigan is lacking funds for even light bulbs and toilet paper, public schools in Chicago, Illinois just spent $67,000 on cappuccino machines of which most are “. . . going unused because the schools they were ordered for had not asked for them . . .”. Yet another […]
Alas, what condemning words are the thirteenth chapter of First Corinthians, and the Sermon on the Mount, when laid alongside the conduct of many professing Christians! – J.C. Ryle 1816 – 1900
How many times have you tried to reason with a Mormon by showing them why the things they are being taught are false? Well, for one thing, not all Mormons believe exactly the same thing. Yes, it’s true. In fact, have encountered Mormons who doubt the validity of the Book of Mormon. One visitor to […]
Only in an environment of prolonged comfort, safety, security, and prosperity could this be possible. I wonder if our Christian brothers and sisters being tortured in prisons around the world are secretly coveting this latest installment from the Den of Robbers. I also wonder if this is being marketed to the underground Church in Communist […]
And the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Son of man, speak to the sons of your people and say to them, ‘If I bring a sword upon a land, and the people of the land take one man from among them and make him their watchman, and he sees the sword coming […]
Question: If “Canaanites” were people who lived in Canaan, and “Amalekites” were people who followed Amalek, and “Midianites,” were people who followed Midian, wouldn’t that mean that “Parasites” are people who follow Paris Hilton?
I just completed the book Family Driven Faith by Voddie Baucham. Don’t let the name fool you; it has absolutely nothing to do with the purpose driven garbage being peddled by the seeker-friendly mega-churches. In fact, I doubt that this book would be well received at such social club churches. In the book, subtitled Doing […]
Your Wednesday sermon of the week is No Condemnation by Tim Conway. As usual, Pastor Conway begins his message slowly like a freight train building up steam, then comes plowing through toward the end with a message that challenges and convicts.
I do not understand how a man can be a true believer unto whom sin is not the greatest burden, sorrow, and trouble. – John Owen 1616 – 1683
After many years of listening to non-sequential, topical, doctrinal sermons, most of which are based on isolated texts, many church members still do not know the Bible as one book. Often repeated verses and some doctrines may be known; but the Scriptures, according to their divinely-given historical structure, are seldom understood. This is equally true […]
I had the television on in the background while doing other things last Saturday. I was watching Bulls and Bears on Fox News, and the panel had a short discussion on how divorce affects the economy. I was shocked that everyone had the same opinion. Here’s a transcript of the conversation from the Bulls and […]
The title of this post is an actual quote I found that was referring to Christians. Obviously I’ve removed the inflammatory noun that was clearly an expletive before publishing the quote in this post. So let’s take a little quiz, shall we? Where do you think I found this quote? A). An Atheist message board. […]
Repentance is taking sides with God against ourselves. It is the unsparing judgment of ourselves because of our high-handed rebellion. It is a ceasing to love and tolerate sin, and to excuse ourselves for committing it. It is a mourning before God because of our transgressions of His holy Law. Therefore, Christ taught, “Except ye […]
I just completed this work by Spurgeon (the audio book version) and found it to be a wealth of encouragement for those who wrestle with their assurance of salvation. It was also a deep source of doctrinal truths regarding God’s grace and provision for salvation; helping me to better understand that salvation is all of […]
A fascinating documentary which exposes Ellen G. White as a false prophetess and the SDA’s anti-Christian, anti-biblical, heretical teachings.
